In the middle of the summer, in the middle of a park.
There began a great adventure for a boy whose name was Mark.
He had come to see the magic man along with all the children &
Twas so began the day that Mark was never to forget.
He performed all sorts of miracles, that Mark was so impressed.
That when the time arrived to go, he lagged behind the rest.
Then quietly he did return,
the secret of the hat to learn.
But everyone had gone away & darkness fell atret.
The moment that he touched the hat, the room began to glow.
And as he put it down & ran, the hat began to
Grow & grow & grow & grow & grow & grow & grow & grow & GROW!
He was & stunned & he was fascinate, but still he had to see.
There was something deep inside the hat, what could that something be.
Then cautiously each step he took,
He climbed upon the brim to look.
And all @ once the hat began to shake & rock, LOOK OUT!
Falling & falling, into the hat he fell.
Spinning & turning, whirling & twriling.
And when he looked into the skies,
He couldn't believe his ears or eyes.
Lidsville is the kook-kook-kookiest!
Lidsville is the kick=kick-kickiest!
Lidsville is the groove-groove-grooviest.
Lidsville is a living end, friend.
If you get a chance to go there,
You'll be glad you did.
Cause everybody who goes to Lidsville,
Really flips his lid!
HOO DOO: Ho ho! How's that for a topper! Ho, Ho!
